One of the highest
sport climbing areas in the Alpine region

Nordkette climbing arena

An approximately 20-minute walk leads directly behind the station building on the Seegrube over the gravel cirque to the Nordkette climbing arena. The approx. 40 routes, the majority of which are single-pitch routes in UIAA difficulty grades 4 to 9, are suitable for beginners with basic knowledge as well as advanced climbers.

The climbing routes were secured by the builder and enthusiastic mountaineer Christian 'Picco' Piccolruaz with over 500 stainless steel bolts and modern deflection chains. The majority of the tours are single-pitch routes equipped with top-rope carabiners, which also allow alpine climbing beginners to try their hand at rock climbing.
